Around 100 guests, including leading tour operators and airlines, had the opportunity to learn about the island’s ‘leisure’ credentials – from outdoor activities and sports to a variety of theme parks and beaches ‘opened’ all year round.

Guests also celebrated the growth of the number of UK and Irish visitors to Tenerife. The island received a total of 73,001 visitors from Ireland from January to September 2016 (+19.2% compared to the same period last year).
